MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) – People in a Memphis neighborhood woke up Friday morning, to something no one expected.
Recruitment flyers for the Ku Klux Klan were scattered throughout dozens of streets in bags secured with white rocks.
"It was there in the driveway, and I'm like Oh my god," said Shakita Pettis.
Another man only identified himself as Taurien. He and another woman haven't even been in their neighborhood two years with their small child.
"I'm thinking about her before anything, because she'll start school here in a couple years," the woman said.
Neither of the two could believe the organization was still active, much less passing out recruitment flyers sometime.
Memphis Police found the rock filled bags at several homes.
A hotline number was listed on the pamphlet. I called and left a message.
Late Friday night, Action News 5 received a call back from a man who identified himself as a member of the organization.
He would not say who was passing out the bags.
The Mid-South Peace and Justice Center responded to the organization's pamphlets in a statement that read:
"These small acts of hate are met by great acts of Love in our community. This attempt to divide has caused neighbors (brown/black/white/gay/straight) to join together in their driveways this morning to denounce your hate. Neighbors that did not know one another became friends this morning, they came to know each other, to understand that their Love of our community will always overcome your hatred."
